... "what we are actually doing is attempting to connect our conscious will with the rest of the universe in order to effect change."
Now, most of us have no idea how something like that is actually done. So we begin with our imaginations. We enter the imaginal realm Mr. Wolf speaks of in his book. We visualize, we imagine feelings, sounds, songs, and lights. We visualize that the work we are doing is healing someone, and we see them getting better in our minds eye."

It is not the visualization of rain that will make it manifest
It is the changing of the Laws in the subtle realms that manifests your desire, pitting Law against Law
In order to do this, you must first understand and know Nature and its boundaries. There is no rain without clouds. No clouds without accumulation of heat and cold. No heat nor cold without weather fronts high or low, etc..
You can not change the nature of a bee, but you can alert the bee to the pollination grounds by "tuning" your thoughts to the subtleties of the flower and then allow Nature to take its course. The same applies to ALL aspects of realms, regardless of potentates
Such is the way
Thank you that is so logical and more obvious once its presented that way. So we should have more focus on the gulf and its potential to gather winds / clouds and updrafts to send rain to Texas, in the form of a hurricane (which sounds formidable) yet necessary to bring the rain to the ranchers.
